This is an amazing album in MQA with some great demo trackS if you like beautifully crafted Americana.

I suggest anyone who is anti-MQA stay out of this thread.

This just dropped today in Tidal and sounds great so far in MQA

We hosted a young artist, Isabella Coulstock, last week who was inspired by Brandy and at a gig, by chance, was sitting next to her mother and they became friends. One of the side benefits of following your dream I suppose. She also covered Hold My hand from Brandy’s 12 stories album very well. Also in MQA.

It doesn’t get much better than this. My wife and I heard all this live in 1973. Probably my most memorable concert ever.

Utterly hypnotic; one of the best piano albums in years.

The Gramphone review suggested:
“In terms of pianistic lineage, Ólafsson combines the fantasy of Maria João Pires and Martha Argerich with the contrapuntal élan of Piotr Anderszewski…DG’s engineers have done this remarkable musician proud. I can’t wait to hear what he does next.”

This is an MQA masterpiece

listening to Tame Impala - The Slow Rush, they have 2 MQA versions, there’s a difference in both versions

and the Currents album, is it MQA Studio? I got a Currents album which is MQA Studio, the other one is MQA only.

Sounds so much better than the non-MQA versions on Tidal

Those Frank Sinatra albums of the period sound just amazing in MQA and go to show just how well they were recorded in the first place.

Kind of the golden age of studio recording, wasn’t it? Those boys really knew what they were doing.
